I know these people probably just shoveled the snow from around their car so that a picture could be taken to have a record of the huge snowstorm that had just occurred. It’s the caption underneath the picture that really got me to thinking about the Christian life.
More specifically I have been thinking about my life, and how many times in the past I have done things that were totally “pointless” as far as eternity was concerned. I have gotten all excited about something and forged ahead without really thinking, praying, or waiting for direction as to the timing of that particular thing. The truth is, it’s not always easy to wait on God’s timing.
The flesh can only see what is before it at the moment, and tries to make a decision based on what looks the best given the options available. The Holy Spirit is sent to the Christian as an everyday guide so that nothing is done by guess or chance.
John 16: 13-14 (The words of Jesus) When he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will show you things to come. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall show it unto you.
If you have asked Jesus to come into your heart, the Holy Spirit is there to guide you into all truth. You just have to ask Him and obey what He tells you to do, even if you might not understand it at the time. God knows all about your future, and only desires the best for you.
Don’t live a “pointless” life any longer. Make every day count as one that you know you accomplished something for God.
